Smile a lot, be kind, ask about places to go, and be yourself.

Aww! Don’t freak out! I’m sure you’re totally likeable! I feel like most people are pretty friendly when you’re friendly to them, and you seem really nice on the Internet at least soooo…. You’re probably nice and friendly in real life too. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Just remember that no matter what, by this time tomorrow, the first day will be behind you. Have a glass of wine, get a good night’s sleep and then knock em dead tomorrow morning. Good luck! Come back and let us know how it goes.

People might not like you at first, and that’s okay. People rarely like me at first. I’m quiet (painfully quiet) around people I don’t know, and a lot of people are turned off by that. I’ve learned to expect and roll with it. The friendships always come eventually. 

Just give yourself some time to get acclimated, and eventually people will warm up to you and vice versa. That’s just how it goes sometimes.

A lot of times it is easier to make friends as a couple too! do you have any hobbies?

@futuremrsk18:  Also, I think it’s pretty normal to only make a few friends from every stage of life! I have like, a small handful of close friends from college, one friend from high school (who I see like, twice a year), zero friends from law school (except for the ones who work with me now, and even they are more like acquaintances) and two really close friends from work. And I think that’s pretty normal, so it’s not like you’ve failed at the game of friendship or anything!

Go have that glass of wine, and tomorrow – just be yourself! I’m sure it will be a lot better than you think it will be. ๐Ÿ™‚
